March 2004 -- 4th Graders & Scouts Tour Newspaper Museum
To schedule a tour of the Newspaper Museum In Collinsville for your class (or any other organization or individual) contact Ted Wright There is no charge. It is not a fancy place, but a unique and authentic slice of Collinsville history. I receive no outside funding, thus there is no air conditioning and minimal heating, so schedule accordingly. "The Collinsville News" (which my family owned for it's first 88 years) was printed in the museum building (at 1110 W. Main in Historic Downtown Collinsville) before my Dad sold the business in 1987. I am now a business competitor of the current newspaper with this (cvilleok) web site.
The web site strives to provide up-to-date daily news coverage of all things in and about Collinsville. This is a one-person business that relies on teachers, parents and students to email with information and photos of academics, fun, sports, fundraisers, or anything else interesting to share with the community.
